Hi! I wanted to update my "chance me" post for UNC Chapel Hill.
High school junior in Wake County, NC
Asian-American female at a very large public high school
Intended major: Public Health on pre-med track, possibly double-major in Psychology (really loved the AP class I took)
GPA: 4.475 weighted, 3.9 unweighted (Will change to 4.5 weighted and 3.8 unweighted after this year ends)
ACT: 35 (8/12 on essay)
SAT: Superscore = 1540 (770 math, 770 rw) combined of a 1480 and 1520
Class rank: ~50/600 (top 8%)
PSAT in 11th grade: 1480 (Could I possibly qualify for National Merit?)
AP Exam Scores: AP Psychology (5) AP Human Geography (4)
All A's except for AP Calculus AB and BC (I really dislike math, haha). Current AP's include AP Calculus AB/BC, AP English Language, AP Environmental Science, and AP US History. Past AP's' include Psychology and Human Geography. Took Spanish 1-4 as well. Senior year schedule includes AP Biology, AP Art History, AP Literature and AP Statistics. I'm expecting to graduate having taken 11 AP courses.
Key Club 9-10th grade
National Honors Society 11-12th grade
Future Health Professionals - PR Manager in 11th grade, elected president for 12th grade
Dental Club - President
Food Ark (service club) - Outreach Committee in 10th grade, VP of Outreach in 11th grade
DECA - VP of Communications in 11th grade
-- State finalist freshman year, won fifth place sophomore year and attended Internationals
-- 2nd place sophomore year
Pianist --> I've been playing for almost 10 years now, have attended various competitions, etc. and have a few awards/recognitions, I've also been teaching piano lessons for about 2 years now
Dance --> I've done traditional Indian dances since I was 5 years old and I'm very passionate about it
I also help teach young kids religious classes at my local temple
I'm really worried that AP Calculus and the slight hit to my GPA from getting B's in those classes are going to hurt my overall chances to get in. I do know students who have gotten the same number of B's, if not more, and still got in, but I wanted to hear some other opinions as well. Thanks so much to anyone who reads this and gives their input!
